The holidays are rapidly approaching and it often brings out the best and worst in people. A couple of thieves were caught on security cameras stealing packages from a home in the Youngsville area.

The men targeted a home in the Copperfield Subdivision that had a package left at the front door. One man gets out of the pickup truck, races to the door, takes the package and then tosses it in the back.

The men were able to get away with the package before anyone saw them, but the security cameras on the house did not miss them.

If you recognize the man in this video or the getaway truck, you're asked to call the Youngsville Police Department at 337-856-5931.

Many of you may have packages delivered to your home in days and weeks ahead. It's always a good idea to either pick the package up at a shipping location or have it mailed to your work place in order to avoid what we saw here.
